Pros

Have been very flexible with my schedual, manager is great, good benifits and retirement planning with company match. Regular raises

Cons

outside management is totally disconected from the store and give off the impression that they do not care about employees at the store level at all. They have quite a few bonus benifits listed for employees on their website, such as employee referals and paying for you to get a rosseta stone program but if you request it they will just ignore it if you are not persistant in calling them about the status, will still take months to get it taken care of.

Advice to Management

The company at the top seems to be promoting the message that they really care about the employees and that the company is all people that have worked their way up from ground level, but there is a big disconnect and I feel like the general atitude of employees at the actual stores is that staff at the district level and above don't care and that unless you get into the company through the MTP program out of college you will not have an opportunity for growth

    Pros

    Great "stepping stone" for a real career later. Very structured, lots of support, but micromanaged. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Unreasonable demands consumarate to the compensation. 60-70 hour work weeks are quite common during the summer months. This is essentially a retail management position so you work weekends, holidays, etc...

    Advice to Management

    From a stock-holder's perspective, I think you are incredible!! As an employee, you could definitely loosen the pursestrings and staff the stores accordingly.

    Pros

    If your a minority or a woman , then your golden. If you bust your tail and dont get shafted by upper management then you have the ability to make bonus.

    Cons

    NO family life at all. You get hours off not days. You have no staff and are alone alot. All non fulltime employees are completely cut on hours so if you had a good employee they quit because Connor,Davidson, and other big wigs care more about their wallet than employees. LOOOOOONG hours for a paint store. Lack of pay for required job.

    Advice to Management

    Care a little more. Dont make up new policies about how to stock the warehouse because women have a hard time doing it. Cut these dumb hours back and give people a freaking day off.
